50 miles to feed 50 people
We did it
On 16th June 2020 we successfully raised £250 with 12 supporters in 28 days

I am raising money to help ensure my community doesn't starve or suffer during this pandemic. No one ever deserves to go hungry. Period.

First of all, Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraiser.

I am going to be raising money for Torbay Food Alliance by running and hiking 50 miles in 4 weeks. They are made up of community and voluntary sector organizations, all working together in direct response to COVID-19. 

The idea behind this name is 3 meals will cost about £5 a day and as my aim is £250, I will be running 50 miles in an attempt to raise enough for 50 people for a whole day.

I have chosen running and hiking, as I find it very difficult (but need to get my fitness up for my military career) and I wish to challenge myself so that I can experience struggling in a different way. Also, try to understand how it feels to be hopelessly hungry in such a stressful time. 

This is such an important cause to me due to seeing how this virus is affecting society physically and mentally. As food is a basic human need, it is essential there is help for those who need it, whenever and wherever.  

Any help or donations will be massively appreciated by myself and Torbay Food Alliance. Thank you :)
